A massive stone carving honoring the Oglala Lakota warrior and hero Crazy HorseCrazy Horse Memorial has the potential to become the world’s largest sculpture at 195 m (641 ft) wide and 172 m (563 ft) high. This memorial was originally commissioned by Chief Henry Standing Bear in 1948 and has yet to be completed. The monument is located in the Black Hills, a land sacred to Lakota culture, only 27 km (17 mi) away from Mount Rushmore. Sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski’s widow now oversees the ongoing work and the education of visitors on Native American culture. Entrance fees support the continued construction of this work in progress, as the sculpture receives no federal or state funding.

We were charged $30 for all who were traveling in the car (we were 5) so the price seemed appropriate. The visitor center has wifi and a movie in which they show the history of the monument which is worth it.
As a retired veteran, our group was granted free admission. What a treat. Construction is proceeding on the mountain sculpture but it’s a long way from done. The museum is excellent and there are many... more »
This Memorial is breathtaking when you have opportunity to go to the very top and look into Crazy Hoses Eyes and see what he has seen, felt and how all his people went thruogh. When you look out in the open territories or lands all around him it is breathtaking. Beautiful and peaceful. I just wish that I will still be around to see him finished but I don't foresee that in my life time. So for now I go and spend my time there when I can. I feel like I'm home when I'm there why I don't know but I do.
Interesting place to visit especially if interested in Native American history and a good contrast to Mount Rushmore. Staff was nice and enjoyed watching the movie about the history and construction of the monument. The museum was a nice surprise and had a lot of information, history , and artifacts from early American Indians. Enjoyed my time here.
